Coming Soon – Chanel Paradoxal and A New Blue

Chanel-paradox-nail-polish-Fall-Makeup-Collection-2010 Back in March during the Chanel Fall 2010 runway show we learned that Chanel Global Creative Makeup Director Peter Philips was bringing back Jade Rose from the Jade Collection this Fall.

Jade Rose was kind of lost in the craze over Jade last year so it gets a second chance at stardom. Though thanks to my girl Izzy from Musings of a Muse we see that Jade Rose has some stiff competition in the murky purple-tinged Paradoxal. I know I can’t wait to get my hands on it!

chanel-cruise-baby-blue-nail-polish In other Chanel news, the Cruise 2010-2011 collection made its runway debut this week with the models sporting both Jade Rose and an unnamed baby blue nail polish that will be released sometime in the future. If history tells us anything, I’m thinking we may see this as part of a limited edition collection a la the Paris Shanghai and Paris Moscou collections.

    My word, they are PRETTY!

  2. Mich says:

    I love love love how Paradoxe looks in the bottle! I’ve seen a swatch somewhere, where it didn’t look as good, but still pretty hot!! Can’t wait to see it either :-)

  3. Nicole says:

    Could What’s With the Cattitude be a possible dupe for the mystery baby blue?

  4. Catanya says:

    Excited about Paradoxe!

  5. Ashley A. says:

    Man, Paradoxe looks so pretty!! I wish I could afford Chanel nail polishes, but for now I’ll just drool over it. :)

  6. Jennie says:

    Gorgeous! I can’t wait to see a swatch of paradoxe.

  7. Lauren says:

    Oooo, considering how devoted I am to my purples, especially Vendetta (wearing it right now topped with OPI Mad as a Hatter), seeing Paradoxe made me squee out loud. I can’t wait to see swatches!

    • V. says:

      omg. seriously, i have the SAME combo on right now. Vendetta + Mad As A Hatter. Blue Satin + Absolutely Alice is my other fav combo.

  8. Alison says:

    Ooh Paradoxe is pretty and I missed out on Jade Rose the first time (I live in UK and it didn’t come here, a wonderful friend got me Jade though!). I have only just collected the Paris-Shanghai and the summer Les Pop-Ups and then I see the next installment! I love my Chanels and my collection is getting very big now!

    The Baby Blue is interesting, although I am unsure of whether I can get away with this colour Chanel usually proves to me that I can wear them (Nouvelle Vague, Jade and Particuliere were ones I thought would never work but I love them!)

    Thanks for posting!

    are you sure that blue isnt just nouvelle vague? looks pretty close to me…. x

    • mill says:

      oh no i see its much bluer and lighter… two light blues in two seasons? yes please

    • All Lacquered Up says:

      My info came straight from Chanel. It’s not Nouvelle Vague. It’s a new color. They just haven’t named it yet.

  10. Natalia says:

    Can’t the baby blue polish be Nouvelle Vague?

  11. stubby says:

    Could the color Bogie from the new China Glaze Vixen Collection be a dupe for Paradoxe?

  12. Serena says:

    I just noticed that in your picture gallery China Glaze Lemon Fizz is labeled as Yellow Fizz.

  13. Christine says:

    Pretty!! Can’t wait for Paradoxal.

  14. Jade says:

    I also think it is nouvelle vague! I saw a friend wearing it this weekend and it looks just like in the picture.

  15. AmyS says:

    Paradoxyl looks very much like Zoya’s Ki from the picture. I can’t wait to see this one swatched and maybe even a comparison swatch. I have Ki, so I wonder if I already have a dupe LOL!

  16. Shiffa says:

    The color looks fabulous. Chanel is really taking fashion to new levels.

  17. Kayla H. says:

    hmm, that blue looks strikingly similar to my Blueberry Ice Cream by Barry M. I’ll wait until swatches until I buy :)

  18. none says:

    some swatches of any kind would be nice

    • All Lacquered Up says:

      I’m sorry I haven’t had any swatches up but my laptop died and I had to get a new one and have my old data salvaged. Plus I needed a new photo editing program. I’m doing the best I can and am finally able to start putting some swatches up again.

  19. Bite Buff says:

    Baby Blue is really popping up this season! I just don’t know if I can get on board.

  20. Debzy says:

    Ooh, can’t wait to see a swatch of Paradoxe! It might be a more vibrant purple than the disappointing Vendetta (which just looks black on me)

  21. P. says:

    I called my local Chanel to discover that the blue is already sold out! But was able to get 2 bottles of the Gold Lame so hyped about that.

  22. B. says:

    I’m excited about Paradoxal and can’t wait for it! Do you know, if it is going to be offered in Germany?

  23. Susan says:

    Any idea how does it compare to Silver Purple 782 from Dior??

    • Kimberly says:

      I just picked up paradoxal yesterday! I love it! It’s like a cross between Dior silver purple and Chanel Particuliere.

      • Susan says:

        Is Paradoxal different enough from Silver Purple to make it worthwhile to purchase? Thanks!

        • All Lacquered Up says:

          I would say so. To me they look nothing alike. Silver Purple is well, silvery with a hint of smokiness while Paradoxal is more of a browned grey purple.

  24. Jennie says:

    Does anyone know when paradoxal comes out? I have to have a bottle!!

  25. HeidiG says:

    Kimberly – Who has it in stock? I got the chanel email but was wondering if (hoping) it was in stores yet??
